[ocr errors]

The School Laws of Iowa, Section 2624, authorizes the Superintendent of Public Instruction, if he deems necessary, to cause to be printed every four years all school laws in force up to that time, with such notes, forms, rulings and decisions as may be of value to school officers in the discharge of their duties.

Each school corporation and each director is entitled to receive a copy for which the school officers are responsible. These copies are to be delivered to successors in office and it is therefore urged that special pains be taken to preserve them. Copies of the school laws cannot be secured by writing the State Department, but school officers entitled to them shall inquire of their County Superintendent. Copies may also be purchased from the County Auditor of each county at twenty cents each.

The explanatory notes printed herein have been prepared in accordance with recent legislation and the most recent rulings of the Supreme Court, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and opinions of the Attorney General. References in most instances have been given which will indicate the source of authority and add value to their use. Those who desire additional information will find the Supreme Court decisions on file in every court house, which may be consulted upon application to the Clerk of the District Court.

The appended decisions are those rendered by the Department of Public Instruction. Only such decisions as involve the most important points in law are contained in the present volume. Reading these decisions will give a clearer understanding of the laws.

The sections will appear in practically the same order as in the 1907 edition. Sections of the Laws amended by the Legislature since the publication of the Edition of 1907, have been revised in accordance therewith. Entirely new legislation will be given under chapters which have been taken from the reports of the Thirty-third and Thirtyfourth General Assemblies. Until such time as a complete re-codification of our school laws takes place the present order must be maintained.

This book is submitted to the school officers of Iowa with the hope that such matter as may appear will be read thoughtfully and the knowledge gained thereby will enable the directors to perform better their duties to the public.

A. M. DEYOE, Superintendent of Public Instruction.
